Just completed three stays at two different Ritz Carltons, 2 at Central Park and one in Palm Beach. The New York stays were on Marriott points and were made before the massive devaluation - what cost me 200,000 points for five nights would now go for 280,000! The Palm Beach was a reward from a vendor. Needless to say, each experience was, to use only one word, impeccable. That said, I can't see spending 70,000 points per night. I know I can buy Ritz stay certificates and sometimes save enough to make it worthwhile but do any of you sages have any other ideas about how to stay at a Ritz for the lowest amount possible? Any codes out there that might work? Appreciate any and all insights. Thanks.
